Looking at all of the things that De’Andre Hunter has accomplished, what cons could there possibly to drafting him? Well, as is the case with any college prospect, Hunter has plenty of room to grow.
For starters, Hunter can lack decisiveness in certain situations. His hesitation to drive and attack can sometimes get him into trouble, as this allows the defense time to react and force him into bad positions. This often results in turnovers or tougher shot attempts for Hunter.
Furthermore, there is an issue of him not really being elite at any specific aspect of the game. He is above average at most things, good at a few, but isn’t necessarily great at anything. Outside of his defense, Hunter can’t be considered fantastic at any one particular thing, limiting his long-term ceiling.
This isn’t a bad thing. In fact, an all-around skill set is actually a promising trait to have entering the league as the need for this type of player is only growing larger in the NBA. However, if he fails to develop the entirety of his game, this could stop him from being an All-Star and lead to him becoming a painfully average player.
